ELJ102.0322 (47293) is a HyFlex class and students can choose how to attend this class (either online or in-person). See this introduction to HyFlex ELJ102 for more information.
Each lesson cycle (each week -- two lectures and one lab) is in the following structure.
Reading: You should read the sections of the textbook that will be covered in each lesson (See the weekly schedule for the class below.)
Quizlet: Vocabulary is central to learning any new language and it is one of the major focuses in this class. Students will receive a set of vocabulary exercises on Quizlet every week. This is an optional activity, but students will receive additional points (up to 5pt) for the weekly vocabulary quiz.
Blackboard: Students will have to complete weekly quizzes every week on Blackboard. There will be practice questions for the quiz. Each quiz is worth 10 points of the grade.
Recorded lectures: Some lectures are recorded for students to preview or review the class.
or HyFlex meetings:
During the synchronous in-person or online meetings, we will review the topic(s) of the week and engage in group/individual activities.
Students will have to submit workbook assignments every week. Assignments must be submitted through Blackboard before the deadline (usually at the midnight of Sunday). Use the workbook submission sheets to submit your workbook homework.
Project-based assignments: Students will be assigned to several project-based assignments during the semester. Projects may include but not limited to (recorded) presentations, written essays, group projects, and fieldwork assignments. For projects, we will employ different tools such as Flipgrid, Google Doc, and xxx.

An eligible student should be a learner of Arabic, Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, or Spanish (they can be any level from the true beginner [1st semester student] to the advanced/heritage language speakers). A volunteer student will participate in a 30-min interview with a language instructor who will assess your oral language proficiency. Participants will receive a $20 gift card.
